Upholding and promoting human dignity and well-being
Staff, Trustees and volunteers will respect, uphold and defend each person’s physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual integrity and well-being. We work towards promoting the best interests of individuals and groups in society.
Respecting the right of self- determination
Staff, Trustees and volunteers will respect, promote and support people’s dignity and right to make their own choices and decisions, irrespective of their values and life choices, provided this does not threaten the rights, safety and legitimate interests of others.
Promoting the right to participation
We will promote the full involvement and participation of people using our services in ways that enable them to be empowered in all aspects of decisions and actions affecting their lives.
Treating each person as a whole
We are concerned with the whole person, within the family, community, societal and natural environments, and will seek to recognise all aspects of a person’s life.
Identifying and developing strengths
We will focus on the strengths of all individuals, groups and communities and thus promote their empowerment.
